magical holiday decorating

November 28, 2009

bits and baubles in silver and gold… such a lovely distraction from the to-do lists, the long lines and the other bah-humbugs of the season. i adore a neutral palette anytime of the year, but during the holidays, there is something especially soothing about using tone on tone metallics. one of the most remarkable things about being in a recession is how it makes us all more introspective, even when it comes to our decorating. our pocketbooks may be short on silver and gold, but it’s not impossible to make our homes look stellar this holiday season.
all photos (except sage creek package) were taken by the wonderfully talented chris everard

all it takes is a little thinking outside of the box. at the shop this year, we trimmed our twelve foot christmas tree with etched vintage glassware. so many of us have cabinets filled with china and stemware that has been passed down to us by the beloved people in our lives. now is the time to bring it out and put it to good use. attempt to see things through different eyes to find inspiration this holiday season. just think back to how magical the holidays were when you were a child… <<it’s all the simple things>>… and sometimes it is too easy to lose site of these things as life keeps moving us forward.

    Absolutely stunning…again…;0) I always feel like I’m not making things magical enough for my kids; not compared to what I remember as a child…it really is the simple things we remember and continue to make us believe in the magic!
